The firing trainings organized by ICTS not only aim at effective use of a firearm, but also its safe handling and protection during routine times.
The firing trainings include the following subjects:
Training without Ammunition: In the beginning of the training, before live firing trainings, the basic subjects of firing are discussed with the security officers, with arms and without ammunition. In this section:
Safety rules: This is the most basic and critical subject of the whole training process. The safety rules that must be followed by the security officer for his/her own safety and the safety of others during training and when on duty are taught.
Firearm Checks: The methods for the firearm checks required to be done before and after firing
Firing Positions: Standing, on ground, correct and balanced firing positions
Correct Grip of a Firearm: Correct ways to hold the firearm for an accurate shot
Trigger Exercises: The correct trigger squeeze method for an accurate shot
Live Firing Trainings: The following subjects are discussed in live firing trainings:
Serial, fast firing to a close target without aiming
Firing to a target at a medium distance
Firing with aim to a target at a long distance
Firing by changing magazines
Standing, crouching, and combined firing techniques
Simulations: The last part of the firing trainings include the simulation trainings which aim at measuring and improving the correct reaction competencies of the security officers who encounter a possible surprise. These simulations aim at ensuring that a security officer who faces with an armed attack is psychologically prepared for this situation and able to apply the correct emergency procedures.
